Do most celebs smoke or something? So many seem to have been caught doing it at one time or other

Nicotine is an easily accessible and legal appetite suppressant

I know smoking is not healthy, but it’s so common in Europe, we don’t even think about it. Why is everyone in US acting so suprised when some celebrity smokes? I’m genuinly curious.

Because it’s extremely frowned on in the US. I’m Czech/American and in the Czech Republic all you get are icky warning labels on cigarettes but in the US it’s considered highly gross and low class to smoke (not to mention that tobacco products are 3-6x as expensive because they’re taxed to all hell and back).
so if you see a pic of an American celeb smoking it’s similar to them picking their nose or but crack, lol. This just applies to tobacco, pot is still considered cool and edgy ;P

In Norway too. It’s considered really disgusting. Not many young people smoke, those who do are usually from a low income background and low degree of education and generally lead a hicksville lifestyle. But alot of the 60 somethings still smoke. But it’s banned in restaurants and cafees and even when you are waiting for the bus outside you cannot smoke near other people. You will have to walk far away so that the smoke doesn’t bother other people. In Denmark it’s more “relaxed”, more young people smoke there and they have cafees and bars in which you can smoke.

i wouldn’t say it’s that extreme in the US. that sounds like a lot of your personal opinion. tons of ppl still think smoking is cool, it’s not really thought of as that low class or disgusting…just fyi, i’m in DC, i don’t know if you’re in a city or suburbia or w/e… and pot is really not that edgy anymore.

I suppose it depends a lot on your background. I went to a private school then uni and now work in marketing and everyone in my social circle has always been extremely conscientious about health and image and associate smoking with rednecks and highschool dropouts. Which makes it so surprising to see someone like Bella do it because she doesn’t come from a lowclass background (to answer the OP)

i live in LA and everyone will look at you disgusted if you smoke a cigarette. i work in a busy area of santa monica in which i never see anyone smoke. however i do believe LA is healthier than the rest of the country.. into those health crazes (i.e. juice cleanses and what not)

Not sure which part of Europe you’re talking about, but in Germany it’s definitely out of style, not to mention banned in many public places, such as restaurants. Smokers are the minority nowadays, at least among younger people.

That’s just not true. In Berlin, Hamburg, every major city… Half of all hipsters, young people from 20 to 40 smoke.

Guest

Exactly my experience. Vienna, Munich, London, Paris, young people smoking everywhere, especially students at University and artists of various fields.

Annie
Guest

Sorry, but the facts are on my side. Less than 30% of all German adults are smokers, which is obviously the minority. The percentage of smokers amongst teenagers and young adults is even lower and has been declining for years. Berlin has the largest percentage of smokers, by the way. Google “Tabakatlas” if you’re interested in the details.

It’s banned in just about all public places here in the U.S. (at least in my state) and people who smoke are often embarrassed by it, so you see it less and less.

I spent a year studying in Germany (6 months in Kassel and 6 in Berlin) in 2015 and smoking certainly didn’t seem out of style. Maybe what I had observed in was actually a reduced incidence, but for a non-European it felt like a lot.
Also in places like Switzerland I observed people openly smoking next their children. While we should respect people’s choices as adults I certainly think consideration should be required as to the effects of secondary smoke.

when i was in europe i spent time in france germany and belgium. in france it depends on where you are, paris is a nightmare. for one thing armed guards are at every corner, second gypsies are always behind your back waiting to steal or giving your sob stories, third the city is very dirty and full of smokers. there is a great deal of beauty in paris but the city has some major problems…. go to eastern france in the alsace region and its very different. western germany is much the same, in frankfurt and cologne there is smoking… Read more »

Really? A police state? Major problems?
Brussels, Paris and Berlin are still reeling from terrorist attacks, of course they’re heavily guarded right now, it’s for your safety!
You would think that any person travelling there would know that…

As far as smoking goes, smoking in public, especially outside restaurants and on streets seems more normal in Europe than in the US but it’s definitely on the decline. Law regarding smoking in public are getting much stricter and younger generations are less likely to smoke than ever.

cam

course i know that, i am well aware of the terrorism in europe. thats the point…. there’s a general feeling of fear and unease in the air because of it and the police everywhere kind of has everybody on edge. theres a massive immigration problem that is not doing europe well/

Personally i would be more afraid of walking the streets of the US and getting shot…just saying. It’s far safer here than in America.

I study at the university in Brussels and I live here. Brussels is a dirty city, but that’s also kinda charming about it. There are a lot of different cultures here and great places to discover. The guards and tanks came AFTER the terrorist attacks so what you are saying doesn’t really make sense because they are there for our safety. And yes a lot of people smoke here but it’s forbidden to smoke inside and I feel like people can do wtf they desire as long as they are outside and not close to kids.

agree with this, except at parties. More people tend to smoke when they drink here in Denmark

France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Romania, Hungary, Turkey, and in so many other countries smoking is considered normal and natural and not gross. I guess it is a matter of culture.
I am not a smoker and I cannot stand the smell of smoke but living in a country where smoking is normal, i do not find it disgusting.

Otilia

And smokers are not a minority especially among the young people.. They are the ones who smoke the most, starting with high school age. The good thing is that in the countries where smoking is so popular, drugs and alcohol aren’t.

the bottom line is that it should be seen as bad as obesity. even worse perhaps. both unhealthy, both hard to quit. i dont care how many people do it in paris, its nasty and there is nothing civilized or chic about destroying your body

Hi! I’m born and raised in LA and it is honestly pretty uncommon and frowned upon for people to smoke. People will be blacked out drunk and still comment to someone how “unhealthy” smoking is. And when you meet someone that says they “smoke” I ALWAYS assume it’s weed. I’ve almost never had a mixup where they actually meant cigarettes.

Also, I don’t mean this in a judgey way, obviously Americans are not healthier in general than Europeans, just helping explain the situation with cigs 🙂

I’m late in commenting, but I can also attest to this. Lived in LA for several years. Moved to Toronto afterward and couldn’t believe the difference in attitude toward smoking–in LA, there’s definitely a shame associated with it. Smokers would stand far away from building entrances. When looking for apartments, it was the norm to see landlords forbidding smoking inside. (Whereas I was greatly surprised to find in Toronto that apartments couldn’t legally ban tenants from smoking in their actual apartment–only in the hallways and lobbies. And people smoked right outside of the subway/bus entrances with no shame whatsoever. So… Read more »

Average and doughy, imagine if she couldn’t facetune every Instagram picture, or get retouched in every print ad.

Olive

Doughy? What an odd choice of adjective, if you’re not familliar with Bella, she’s been featured almost daily on Skinny & Curvy, and she’s very thin and has an elongated oval face shape. Her sister’s face is average but I find her nowhere near “doughy” and average as you described, she’s not a great model but her face is very nice. I’m sure most commenters will agree with me.

Antonella

she isn’t very thin. She is a skinny fat, she is doughy, she has little to no muscle tone anywhere unless it gets edited or photoshopped into a non candid photo.

Her body in lingerie looks thin and perfect to me, how is it skinny fat? Where can you point the extra fat she has? and before you try to say it’s from late last year. You can see her body in a more recent post Versus shared a month ago, my guess is she’s maybe 7 lbs heavier but she’s nonetheless thin. I’m curious though, how thin are you to judge her so harshly? My body looks like hers minus the breasts, I’m much more flat chested than she is and most my entourage always say I look thin.

You do realize that is what November when those were taken? When she like every other runway model fast prior to walking the runway? Bella is notorious for crashing prior to runway and blowing up again. She doesn’t workout, she doesn’t follow a healthy diet. She crashes and bloats. If you want to angry about my comments because it hits close to home that’s fine. But bella is average at best, she edits her photos and print ads and crash diets/fasts prior to shows to make herself look somewhat presentable. She does not have a high fashion build nor does… Read more »

Smoking is very common in the rest of the world, and it is an appetite suppression, so a lot of models and actresses do.
Just do not find her attractive, or intelligent, witty in interviews. She’s had way too much cosmetic surgery, and is dull as a post. She bought her way into modeling, like her sister and the kartrashians.

I am surprised she smokes considering her mother Yolanda is such a health conscious person and a lyme disease advocate. She even came out and said Bella suffered from Lyme disease. Smoking is one of the worst things for the immune system!
